Cell therapy holds huge potential for the future of treatment of a wide range of disorders and conditions, but what is less obvious is the extent to which cell therapy, and tissue engineering in general, is already in current clinical practice, and how close a wave of new products is to gaining regulatory approval and entering the market.  As we have previously noted, the global cell therapy and tissue engineering market is already a $6.9 billion market. 

Over three dozen companies are working on cardiovascular applications of tissue engineering and cell therapies.  Almost half of these companies have a product in clinical trials and at least ten companies have approved products.
